Suicide Prevention Awareness Month 2020

Each year Suicide Prevention Awareness Month is in September. It is an opportunity to remember those we have lost, celebrate the progress we have made, and re-dedicate ourselves to the cause.

We are thrilled to announce that all 95 counties across the state have recognized September as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and have committed to expanding suicide prevention efforts in Tennessee!
